Following the conclusion of Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission’s (SFC) public consultation, fund managers will likely need to take climate-related risks into consideration in their investment and risk management processes and make certain climate related disclosures as early as August 20, 2022.
What are the potential challenges and opportunities facing fund managers, and how can institutional investors prepare themselves for this potential new environment?

In this, we aim to provide a high-level overview of the amendments to the Fund Manager Code of Conduct and highlight key takeaways from the Consultation Conclusions as Hong Kong enters a new phase of sustainable fund management . We will also touch on the key solutions available to support fund managers making the transition and preparing for the new disclosure requirements.
Our climate specialists and experts will share their views, experience as well as best practices in tackling climate change related disclosure reporting.
